Delta ends musical drought
WHEN Delta Goodrem released her last album in 2007, iTunes was only a few years old, Twitter didn't exist and YouTube didn't have the power to make or break a career.
Now, on the eve of her first release in almost five years, the pressure of performing in a new landscape is mounting.
"You're always aware that times are changing but, as a songwriter, music is my blood," The Voice coach told Confidential yesterday in announcing details of a new east coast tour.
"You always may write a certain way but you want to keep moving forward so you're not left behind. It's all of us. We've got to always make sure that you sound current and stay modern. I always say to young artists, you've just got to write because no one else can produce a hit for you. You've got to be able to bring it from yourself because you can't wait for other people."
Goodrem - whose new album Child Of The Universe will be out next month - conceded she's glad she waited."I obviously needed a bit more time and it wasn't necessarily for the music - it was for me," she said.
"The only pressure I put on is myself."
The new tour, An Evening With The Delta Goodrem, will be a series of stripped-back shows, with a bigger tour planned for next year.
She will perform a Sydney gig at the State Theatre on October 31.
